Abstract

After having investigated in many of his novels the human soul and his weaknesses, Philippe Claudel gives readers, in his latest book entitled Parfums, the possibility to follow him in a journey backwards, which recalls his olfactory memories. We will try to show how, starting with those reminiscences, the author brings us to discover his world. Philippe Claudel materialize those scents, whether pleasant or unpleasant into images, turning them into snapshots. It will be impossible in this paper to detail all the scents that inhabit the sensory world of Claudel, however, we will attempt to trace in this kaleidoscope of perfumes the aspects and issues with which the man and the writer must face.
